Ahh…the holidays. A great time to sit back, relax, and balance your freaking checkbook.
One THOUSAND dollars down the hatch last month?
I wish with all my dreams that I had spent that money on this.
But instead I got to spend it on my car.
And then the little surprise that came in my air filter.
A little unexpected bundle of cash was dished out to the car place when they found a DEAD MOUSE in my air filter.
MmmMmmMmm….nothing like breathing in dead mouse for who knows how long. My favorite.
But the best was when I was telling Gert about this on the phone she interrupted me and said, “Can I get a bag?” to a cashier. It’s okay. She was shopping. Wish I had spend my money on something fun instead of funding a mouse graveyard.
Someone told me one time though that every time something annoying happens it’s secretly a blessing. Let’s try it, shall we?
Ø I’m thankful I have auto bills to pay because that means I have a car.
Ø I’m thankful my hair snarled around my elastic band this morning because that means I have hair.
Ø I’m thankful I burned the living blazes out of my hand on the soup pot today because now I smell like Aloe Vera and I’m pretending it’s summertime.
Ø I’m thankful I am sick tonight because I have been reminded about the beautiful restorative powers of Coke (straight up regular Coke. No DC.)
